AB Probate Forms

Show Table of Contents

There are a number of province-specific forms you may need when going through the probate process.

General Forms

In Alberta, the Court of Queen's Bench handles probate and estate administration (see Court of Queen's Bench locations).

You can check with your local court for the forms they might prefer, and below you will find some of the more common AB forms:

Note that some of these forms supplied by AB require you to use a standalone PDF Reader, such as Adobe Acrobat, and will not function in the browser.

See AB Probate Forms for a more complete list of forms that may be required in certain situations, and find even more in Alberta Surrogate Rules Schedule 3. You can also purchase a complete package of Surrogate Forms and instructions from the Queen's Printer Bookstore.

Small Estates

Small estates sometimes need only 1 specialized form or affidavit: see Small AB Estates.


If the estate needs to probate real estate in another province, you may be able to reseal the original grant of probate rather than start from scratch in the secondary province: see Ancillary Probate & Resealing.
